Notes: Skype Based Game


This method of designing a setup was developed by ETL as a means to design setups quickly and easily for Skype mafia that could be expected to be mostly balanced. It was named "Super Vanilla" to distinguish the game from setups containing unexpectedly swingy, bastard or unpredictable roles. Inspired by Sven's whining about Greatest Idea being run in Skype mafia.

Setup

The setup can be expanded from 4 players and up following the chart below (7 to 9 players is ideal/recommended). After determining how many mafia/town you have according to the number of players, use RNG to get the number of PRs for each faction. If you are lazy or want to get the setup quickly, use the recommended values.

*Only up to 14 players is shown because really, any Skype game with more people than that is just chaos and madness. Make your own damn setup. <3

Numbers

# of players# of Mafia (# of PRS)# of Town (# of PRS)Recommended # of PRs (mafia/town)
41 (0-1)3 (0-1)0/1
51 (0-1)4 (0-1)0/1
61 (0-1)5 (0-1)1/1
72 (0-1)5 (0-2)1/1
82 (0-1)6 (0-2)1/1
92 (0-1)7 (0-2)1/2
102 (0-2)8 (0-2)1/2
112 (0-2)9 (0-2)1/2
122 (1-2)10 (0-3)1/2
133 (1-2)10 (1-3)2/3
143 (1-2)11 (1-3)2/3

Possible Roles

The parentheses in the chart above show the possible number of PRs for each faction. Use RNG to get how many PRs each faction receives. Possible PRs are listed below. You may choose to RNG the roles or select them yourself based on preference, speed, or desire for a particular balance.

Possible Town PRs (6)
Town Cop
Town Doctor
Town Jailkeeper
Tracker
IC
Vigilante*

  • It is highly recommended to include a Town Doctor and/or Mafia Roleblocker in setups with a Vigilante, and exclude the Vigilante from games with less than 7 players.


Possible Mafia PRs (6)
Encryptor
Rolecop
Tracker
Roleblocker
Roleblocker
Roleblocker
RB exists 3x for RNG, providing a higher chance of selecting this role.

Combination warnings:
It is not recommended to include the following combinations:
- Town Cop and a Town Doctor (see Follow the Cop.)
- Mafia Roleblocker/Jailkeeper (for NAR disputes - RB generally takes precedence).

Example Setup

Here is an example of how the setup is determined for a 9-player game, using RNG for the entire process:

1) Determine how many players in each faction (9p: 2/7)
2) Determine how many PRs for mafia: RNG (0-1), receive 1.
3) Determine how many PRs for town: RNG (0-2), receive 1.
4) RNG mafia PRs (1 of 6): Receive 4, Roleblocker.
5) RNG town PRs (1 of 6): Receive 2, Doctor.
6) Final setup: 6 VTs, 1 Town Doctor, 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker

Here's an example of an on-the-spot setup using the lists and recommended values above (when people want to play RIGHT NOW.)
9 players, 2 mafia, 7 town.
Select 1 mafia PR of your choice: Roleblocker
Select 2 town PRs of your choice: Tracker, IC
Final setup: 5 VTs, 1 Town Tracker, 1 Innocent Child, 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker

Done. :P
